Maria Garcia Teutsch is a poet and editor. She has published over 20 journals of poetry as editor-in-chief of the Homestead Review, published by Hartnell College in Salinas, and Ping-Pong journal of art and literature, published by the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, California. She teaches poetry and creative writing online. She serves as president of the board of the Henry Miller Memorial Library.
Ilya Kaminsky on Maria’s Poetics:  “Maria Garcia Teutsch is a poet who looks for lyricism and sensual flavor in our daily moments, and makes poems that ride on the human nerve, like Frank O’Hara told us the poet must.”

Eleni Sikelianos is the author of six previous books of poetry, most recently You Animal Machine, The Loving Detail of the Living and the Dead, Body Clock and The California Poem; the hybrid memoir, The Book of Jon; and a translation of Jacques Roubaud’s Exchanges on Light. She has been the happy recipient of awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Fulbright Foundation, The National Poetry Series, and the New York Foundation for the Arts, among others, and of Princeton University’s Seeger Fellowship and two Gertrude Stein Awards for Innovative American Writing. Sikelianos’s work has been widely anthologized, in two Norton anthologies (Postmodern American Poetry and American Hybrid) as well as Tin House’s Satellite ConvulsionsA Best of Fence, and The Arcadia Project. She has collaborated with filmmakers, visual artists, composers, and musicians, including Philip Glass and Ed Bowes. At present, she teaches in and directs the Creative Writing Program at The University of Denver and teaches for Naropa’s Summer Writing Program. She shares her days with the novelist Laird Hunt and their daughter Eva Grace.
